Star clusters are thought to be born all at once and so have the same ages. I do not think the astronomer is saying he found Population III stars in the cluster, but that the stars naturally divide into three distinct kinds. I can't access the original paper but its title seems to be:

The multiplicity of the subgiant branch of Omega Centauri: Evidence for prolonged star formation

Can anyone help? --John Baab 12:17, 8 June 2007 (EDT)

I removed the phrase ". But astronomers classify the sun as a dwarf because other kinds of stars are much bigger." because I cannot find anything to confirm that the sun is a dwarf star. Also, I don't believe a type G star would be called a dwarf, normally. Anyone who finds different information or can help us in this is welcome to change it back. --John Baab 03:52, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Actually, I think you are correct. Of course the sun is in the Main Sequence, per the Harvard Spectral Classification, so that's how we ought to describe it. Good catch.--TemlakosTalk 13:00, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
